So last week I was browsing thru my books when I came across one of my favorites, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. The last time I read it was in College. During Mid-terms. It wasn't the best idea I ever had. -grins- I had no self control whatsoever and became a hermit in my free time for about a week. It was lovely. Anyway, I was in need of a good read so I picked it up and said goodbye to The Captain for a few evenings.
Now The Captain is used to my reading retreats. He understands that every once in awhile I need to lose myself in a good book. He has become acquainted with my random outbursts of laughter and tears and knows that if he needs to reach me when I'm in the zone he may have to wait until the end of a sentence/paragraph/whatever.
Jasper on the other hand is not familiar with this "reading" thing. He sees an object that is occupying more of my time than him and gets jealous. While I was reading he had his own way of telling me that it was time to put the book down.
The little punk. Of course he ate the pages I was just about to read.
